And touring was born again

The oldest picture we have of a man on skis is….4000 years old, on paintings discovered in Norway. That turns skiing as we know it, with resorts, lifts, parks etc, into a very small part of what is called history and of what was originally designed to carry people on snow. Despite the young age of alpine skiing, the sport quickly replaced touring and turned it into an old-fashioned way of using skis.

Not trendy enough, perhaps too difficult as well as it requires a tough physical condition, touring was underestimated and sadly forgotten for years. But the eco-friendly debates rising and the environmental problems we have nowadays brought touring back in the game. Touring means protecting nature and the mountain. No lifts, no resorts, touring is for nature lovers who like it when there’s no noise and no people around.

Touring, Backcountry or approach ?

There are different ways of touring :

Touring :

The original way of skiing. Before descending, you need to climb and it is the favorite part of a tour for most skiers. Touring means be as one with nature. They need to know how it works (weather, conditions, type of snow, etc) and they mainly use an equipment that’s as light as possible on order to be able to tour for a few days in a row.

Backcountry or freetouring :

If touring is uphill-oriented, freetouring prefers the downhill. To get the best tracks on the untouched slopes, freeriders don’t mind climbing a bit. Be aggressive and charge hard when descending is the main goal which is why they focus on performance more than on lightweight.

Approach :

This is only when you want to reach a close spot near the resort. Not very steep and not very long, this kind of ‘tour’ does not require any specific gear and skiers ride equally on groomed or soft snow. Discover our wide selection of Armada, Atomic, Black Crows, Black Diamond, Blizzard, Dynafit, Dynastar, Elan, Faction, Fischer, K2, Movement, Rossignol, Salomon, Scott, SkiTrab, Volkl, Zag touring skis without bindings!
